Governor Maggie Hassan vetoed
a bill earlier this year that would have required all voters to live in New Hampshire for at least 30 days before casting a ballot.
Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire, along with many other organizations, supported the legislation. Even longtime Democratic Secretary of State Bill Gardner endorsed the bill.
The State Senate is expected to take up a vote to override Hassan's veto next month. Thus, it was positive news that WMUR released a Granite State Poll this week, which showed 57 percent of those surveyed supported the bill, while only 28 percent opposed it.
We will keep you informed on the legislative process as the issue gets taken up again next session. Our organization strongly believes a vast majority of Granite Staters support initiatives to protect the integrity of the election process.
The real question is, why doesn't Governor Maggie Hassan?
